Introduction



Odyssey is a story driven space adventure single/multiplayer audiovisual game that you can play on Standard Monitor or in Virtual Reality (VR). The objective is to find a planet that could support life, but in order to get there the players have to protect the exploration ship (Odyssey) from asteroid storms and failures.



The environment allows the explorer to experience different tasks in a spaceship during uprising music and sounds. The tasks include locating and handling different tools and protecting the spaceship from asteroid fields. At the end of the playable experience, the explorer can review their performance and improve their personal or social score by playing again. The game is multi-modal and allows explorers to learn interesting facts about space through voice acted narrative and vibrant audio.



A maximum of three explorers per session can experience a post-apocalyptic world after the Earth became unable to sustain life. Be a crew member of a large space station inhabited by a group of scientists in search of a new home. The scientists hope to preserve parts of the Earth’s biodiversity in isolated ecosystem bubbles connected to the station. You must protect the ecosystem bubbles, because they carry the last remaining plants and animals from Earth. Travel through space and look for the answers, because humanity is counting on you.





Controls
The experience works both on standard monitor and Virtual Reality (tested with Oculus Rift, Windown Mixed Reality and HTC VIVE). Headphones are highly recommended, since the game is highly musical and bass dominant. There is an in-game option to switch between the two versions. The experience is fully functional using either one. However, there are slight differences in movement controls and user interactions.




Development of Odyssey
The game supports Oculus Rift, HTC VIVE and Windows Mixed Reality VR headsets. However, you can still play it with a Standard Monitor. It is developed mostly at the Virtual Reality Venues in Helsinki Finland, who donate working spaces and an opportunity to develop, test and gather feedback for the experience. Now, we would like to receive feedback, to learn and do better. We believe that outer space and science is something we all could participate in, do research for, dream about, travel to, and wonder about. May the eternal flame and audio guide you!
